The story of our dogs begins in Aiken, South Carolina, where sick, neglected and abused puppies and adult dogs are given life-saving medical care and socialization skills at our Almost Home triage facility. The challenges are significant - many of these dogs arrive to us pregnant and we have had numerous litters born in our system of care; some require critical surgery for injuries and treatment for life-threatening diseases. When ready, they are transported via ground or air on their journey to New Jersey, where they are fostered and adopted out to loving, forever homes.
It is because of generous donors like you that we can continue to address the needs of overpopulation, save dogs from high-kill shelters, provide full-service veterinary care, educational resources and outreach programs, and perform low cost spay/neuter services. Proudly, we have saved the lives of over 7,200 dogs lives in just over 8 years.
Thank you to NBCUniversal and Telemundo’s Clear the Shelter Campaign and the support of Michelson Foundation Animals, for their gracious and generous invitation to be a part of this amazing opportunity to save more lives of our furry friends than ever before!

We are a 100% foster-based, non-profit dog rescue established in 2010 in Summit, New Jersey with offices in Berkeley Heights. We socialize, care for, and provide them with life-saving medical care at our property in Aiken, South Carolina, transport them to our rescue in New Jersey, and nurture them in our network of foster families while they await adoption into loving homes - giving them a second chance at life.
